Day 10

A more energetic morning. Matthew regales his table with tales of Marmite. Demonstrates the professional Marmite breakfast. George tries it. “It was good until it wasn’t…”

Bob and Keithy walk to Bates Mill. Or try. Can’t read newfangled phone thing. End up walking scenic tow path. Because we meant to. Try to get into Mill. Variation on Yorkshire Welcome occurs. Getting good at recognizing it. Not hurt. Much.

At Uni set up for afternoon rehearsals. Kat beats Keithy to Godzilla yell. Group relieved. Piece is tight, ready to go. Video group sets up, refines the piece. New colourful stars. Except for black holes. Science has arrived. Or something like that. Hannah plays samples of Hannah. Thanks, Kjel!

Zeger arrives. Phi appears to sync with older Kinect. Sarah has gigabytes of memory for this piece. Both Sarah and piece unfold nicely. Code issues — gesundheit! Sarah states “One is a wish, two is a kiss, three is a disappointment.” Group is perplexed. Probably means something in Danish. Or something like that.

Soundscape group arrives in a welter of non equipment. Piece sounds good. Needs some panning. Tian’s hands fly around making sounds fly around. Class clears room. George heads to board room to write 2.5 hour exam. No jealously from group — so supportive. Hannah discovers she can squeeze into airlock. No air, no Hannah…

Non-Bermuda triangle is set up for double dance piece. Tape colour seriously discussed. Run through is good, even in dark. Brass chops becoming mush. Dancers looking bagged. Quick break to unmush/unbag. Brass players refuse to move when cued: union ruling or something like that. Probably that. Pack equipment to board room. George is concentrating. Or bored. Or something like that. Proctor Keithy is bored. Playing Candy Crush. Or something like that. Bob rescues him from the pit of digital sugar. Looking forward to tomorrow’s concert!
